Arsenal travel to Wembley this Saturday lunchtime as they take on their local rivals Tottenham Hotspur with a top four place on the line for both sides. Arsenal currently sit 4th four points behind their hosts who had their slim title hopes dashed by Chelsea midweek following their 2-0 loss.
Arsenal go into the match confident after dispatching Bournemouth 5-1 at the Emirates and after emphatically beating the Lilly whites in the return fixture their tales will be up. In recent seasons Arsenal have won just two of the past eight North London Derbies in all competitions and with a woeful away record against top six sides it will not be an easy job taking the three points back to N5.
